The Titanic is meant to be unsinkable, but as it begins its maiden voyage, there’s plenty of danger waiting for four of its young passengers. Paddy is a stowaway, escaping a deadly past. Sophie’s mother is delivered to the ship by police - after she and Sophie have been arrested. Juliana’s father is an eccentric whose riches can barely hide his madness. And Alfie is hiding a secret that could get him kicked off the ship immediately. The lives of these four passengers will be forever linked with the fate of Titanic. And the farther they get from shore, the more the danger looms....
Spend some more time on the Titanic.

There are few things better than a good story well told!
Maybe. My only criticism is that the story is in three separate audio books. My favorite parts were the insights into turn of the century social hierarchy. Enjoyable listening.
I love that this story is being told from the perspective of young people. It has really captivated my 12-year-old son's interest in a couple of ways - he is enjoying learning the history of this event as well as relating to the young characters. The narrator does a wonderful job distinguishing between the characters. Well done!
I have read so many books based on the Titanic. This one has a new story line that is interesting and entertaining. I would probably recommend it.
I was already interested in the Titanic.
He presents his story through the eyes of the protagonist. He gives the feeling of what it was like for the poor at that time.
I would like to read the continuation of the story. The characters were interesting enough to want to know more of their adventures. What happens to them when the Titanic sinks? Do the main characters survive?
There are many stories, myths, fictions, non-fictions, etc., written about the Titanic. This is fiction, young adult, approximately three hours in length. It’s well written, a captivating story. This is a nice selection to inspire a young person in addition to interesting fodder for any reader, the story, to this point, is certainly more plausible than the James Cameron movie. Facts are intermingled with a fictional story, which is character driven, and doesn’t progress through the actual sinking … which we can assume occurs in subsequent books in the series.
Well worth the Audible Daily Deal, not sure about a full credit, though.
Enjoyed listening to the 1st part of Unsinkable: Titanic will downloaded 2 and part 3, I saw the movie version for this story my memorable moment is right at the end of part 1 where the Captain of the ship was given a message about icebergs up ahead and he just puts the information into his pocket without reading it. Narration by Michael Page is clear and easy to listen too.
Audible obsessed! Love listening at work, driving or relaxing.
I have just gotten book 2 and looking forward to the continuation of the story.
Excellent narration. Highly recommended.
